a couple days obsessing over a 1980s or 1990s redistribution quote from obama right? that was the news of the day for the romney campaign at that time. we gave more attention to that than we did to the revifgs the gdp numbers or growth numbers that happened yesterday down from 1.7 to 1.3% growth. you would think in an ideal world for romney that would be a bigger story. the economy grew much slower in the second quarter than we thought. >> right. >> they put a lot more emphasis and push behind the redistribution quote which was old, sort of meaningless, didn't say much about obama. >> 1998. you're looking at the fact that over the last three months, kelly, you have jobs coming in at hundred dollar a hundred thousand per month. and they're chasing the headline of the day or they pull out a 1998 video. people don't care about that any more than they care about when mitt romney stopped being ceo of bain capital. what they want to know is how the hell are you going to get me back to work? >> when you watch a romney event from beginning to end day after day as we do as students of this you
for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy questio
track/wrong track is going up at just the right time for president obama. >> right. in places like ohio, the economy's been better than it has been, at least across the country, on average. rich lawry has a smart column, a conservative columnist, piece in "politico" this morning where he talks about the effect that bill clinton's speech seems to have had on this race. that basically he did a better job than anyone else at saying any of the problems that are still out there, you can't dump them all on president obama. and lawry argues that that was an effective argument. it seems like since then the numbers have changed appreciably. and i think they're more linked to the convention than they are to the data ratner's talking about. there's no doubt everything he's pointed to is real, but i think politics and perception is often shaped by these big events and sort of how you feel emotionally, and that's what's getting picked up. >> all right. jim vandehei, packer fan, you can't get that win back, but we got the refs back. >> i'm still hoping we get that win back. >>> coming up next, a litt
before. >> right. and that's the issue. the republicans have backed off this whole idea of obama as a job killer. they used to use that terminology. they tend not to now only because they've seen this coming. but that would be the strongest argument now that the jobs are not of the same quality. but in terms of numbers, this was a very big argument for the republicans six months ago and prior to that that more jobs -- in fact, the way they like to say it, wolf, you've probably heard it many times before there were more people working on the first day of president obama's presidency than at any other point. that's the way they'd like to say it. bottom line it was a small milestone but an important one for the president. >> now, the other number we're looking at is gdp growth in the last quarter. it went up but not by much. >> right. so the way you measure growth in the economy is how much it grew versus the same quarter, the same three months the year before. and the most recent quarter that we have numbers for is the second quarter of this year. we had thought that the economy grew 1.7%,
against obama that romney can get away with saying things on things like immigration and abortion rights he couldn't possibly have gotten away with when he was running in the primaries, which is what dug him this big hole. i'm predicting a move to the center because he's all over the map right now and he's got to be some place in this debate. >> harwood? >> i agree in part and disagree in part with gene. i don't think this is a contrived event. i think this is two guys on stage. >> yeah. >> in front of tens of millions of people. >> that sounds pretty contrived to me. >> what's contrived about it? they're making the case for the people picking the president. and they've got to show with authenticity and passion what they would do for the country. i think romney's biggest problem has been a lack of authenticity. people not being sure if he's saying what he believes and if he's really bringing the actual expertise he's got inside of him to bear in the campaign. and i think that's what he's got -- >> alex, how long are the debates? >> 90 minutes. >> 90 minutes, okay. i just think -- i think
't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in e past in trai of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administratio about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and mor. and that the part that's in facilities that areservle and are still lnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with in a dialogue t it. you mention tt the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. thidengt willalking netanyahu tomorrow. th p of an ongoing dialogue that we've had to reach an understanding about
. >> then madonna came up with this baffling take on the obama presidency. >> for better or for worse, all right, we have a black muslim in the white house. >> obama has long had to fight off the wall claims that's secret muslim. play donna said later, i was beg ironic. yes, i know obama is not a muslim. >> i can't tell you're being ironic. that's why she got the back larchlt you didn't make any motion to say is i'm being ironic or sarcastic or a wink or anything. >> deborah: madonna has made no secret of who she supports. she had a fake tattoo of the president's name scrawled across her back. >>> it took a national brouhaha but it looks like that disputed call during monday night football has pushed the nfl and those locked-out referees to address their dispute. though it doesn't appear to have hampered the social life of the guy who made the disputed call. whod they give it to? touchdown! >> what does the most reviled ref in america do after making that jaw-dropping touchdown call? >> the most bizarre finish you'll ever see. >> here he is posing with an unidentified blond wearing, that's right, a
